We will help ensure you have a custom URL/Domain name and a hosting account utilizing affordable and reliable service providers.

Getting your domain will require a bit of thought and investigation on your part to ensure that the name is something that meets the following criteria:

  • Availability – We recommend you use whois.com or namecheap.com to see if the domain you want is available.
  • Usability – We recommend you try to choose a domain that is easy to spell and say.
Many people are familiar with WordPress.com, however the ‘better’ way to establish your site is by using the self-hosted option of WordPress.org. In this workshop, we will help walk you through the one-time process of installing WordPress.org on your own host.
After we set-up your domain, hosting, and install WordPress, we will work on setting-up your custom email addresses. For example, these could be your name or info@yourcompany.com.

Alternatives


If you’re like most responsible business owners, you’re wondering what your alternatives might be. Or you’ve already done your research and you know that they are as follows…

Option One


Use a ‘starter’ website platform such as Wix, Weebly, 1 & 1, or a page builder provided by your hosting company.

No doubt, these will get you started. However, they won’t take you very far. Your SEO will be poor and you will be limited in functionality.


  • Fast & Easy
  • Poor Quality
  • Limited Functionality

Option Two


Figure it out on your own.

You’re probably a genius, but unless you have experience, you will waist more time and energy than necessary in trying to figure out the set-up.

Leaving you frustrated, your site launch delayed, and the possiblity of errors in the set-up.


  • Inexpensive
  • Time Consuming
  • High Probablility of Error

Option Three


Hire a professional.

Let’s be honest, we all choose this option if we could, right?

However the reality is that not everyone can afford the cost of a professional web designer, copywriter, and graphic designer.

So, corners have to be cut and choices have to be made.


  • DONE RIGHT!
  • Fast & Easy
  • Cost Prohibitive
  • Lack of Control
